The Blue Badge scheme operates throughout the UK. The scheme provides a range of parking concessions for people with severe mobility problems, who have difficulty using public transport.

In Eden, Blue Badge holders may park:
Free of charge for up to 24 hours in a 'pay and display' car park in a designated disabled or standard parking bay. Some car parks may have a time restriction in a standard bay. This excludes Princes Street car park in Penrith, where 2 hours parking is maximum stay for all users. Blue Badge holders must also display a clock disc when parking in Princes Street.
In certain areas on-street, see the information which came with your Blue Badge to find our where. When you park check the parking signs, as there are time limits on some on-street parking areas. In these parking areas you must display a clock disc.
On single or double yellow lines for up to three hours. (Except where there is a ban on loading and unloading, or where emergency services need access).
Blue Badge holders are not permitted to park in on-street loading bays. Plates on the kerb side of the road show the restrictions in force.
